My wife bought me a Nook a couple of weeks ago and I still haven't bought anything. I'm usually in the middle of five novels and one non-fiction book at a time, but I haven't found a single book recently I even want to read, let alonf purchase.
I've been bookless since finishing Book Five of A Song of Ice and Fire, and have no idea what to read next.
Heck, I haven't wanted to read any tie in fiction, like Star Wars or Trek, and I usually read two or three of those a month.
This makes me sad, its the longest book drought I've had in 20 years. Just nothing I'm interested in right now.

Just finished Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn. If anyone else has read this book I'd like to hear your take on it.
"The Ambition" by Lee Strobel
"Gospel" by JD Greear
I tend to read 2 books at once. Weird, I know.
Just about to finish up Awareness by Anthony De Mello
Great quick read.

Just finished Francona. Better than I thought considering I grow so tired of reading sox and yankees books. Liked the insight to the front office more so than Franconas story.
Now reading Piazza book Longshot. Pretty good so far. Love reading books on how baseball players got to where they are and his story is pretty unique.
I'm reading the Passage of Power by Robert Caro (the 4th of now 5 planned books on LBJ). It covers 1958-1963. I can't speak highly enough of Caro's books.
Junk. Dreck. Junk Food for the Mind. Whatever you want to call it. I've not been in the mood for heavy, educational "good literature" stuff right now, so I've been reading Laurell Hamilton's Anita Blake series.
I started "Overdosed America" but moved it to the bathroom b/c it seems like it will be very boring and tedious. It's been on my "in queue" shelf for quite awhile though, so I really feel like I should finish it.
I'm also a little over a hundred pages into "Life". The Keith Richards memoir. Buckle up...
I'm reading Among the Thugs by Bill Buford. It is a first person account of someone who infiltrated the world of the soccer hooliganism in the late 1980's. It is a tremendous read. I won't spoil his conclusions, but they are unsettling.

Re-reading an old favorite, Death is a Lonely Business by my all time favorite Ray Bradbury.
